USA SALES JUNE - HYUNDAI - Sales for June are seriously down, and will struggle to regain them.
Hyundai Motor America today reported June sales of Hyundai and Genesis branded vehicles of 54,507 units, a 19 percent decrease compared with the all-time June sales record set last year. Retail sales increased for the third straight month, up more than 1 percent in June, while a reduction in fleet sales led to the overall decline.

HYUNDAI BRAND HIGHLIGHTS
“June was the second month in a row we’ve cut back significantly on fleet sales and seen a rise in retail sales in an industry that is down on the year,” said Sam Brnovich, executive director, National Sales, Hyundai Motor America.
“Tucson continues to draw CUV buyers in its competitive segment and achieved another substantial increase in June. With Ioniq demand exceeding our expectations and the 2018 Sonata hitting dealers shortly, we are poised to close the year strong and pick up retail market share.”
GENESIS BRAND HIGHLIGHTS
“In June, G90 was the top overall vehicle in AutoPacific’s Vehicle Satisfaction Awards and the Genesis brand was the highest ranked premium nameplate in J.D. Power IQS,” said Erwin Raphael, general manager of Genesis in the U.S. market. “These recognitions are important indications that we are respecting our customers and delivering on our promise of a new luxury experience.”
